ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Hetzner Online has deployed its 100G Core technology throughout its backbone network. One of Germany's leading web-hosting providers and data center operators, Hetzner Online is using ADVA Optical Networking's 100G coherent solution to respond to fierce growth in video traffic and other bandwidth-intensive applications. Hetzner Online was able to rapidly deploy the ADVA 100G Core by plugging it into its existing 10G network.
"Customers expect access to online information instantly. What's more, they expect robust and reliable service. To do this requires bandwidth and lots of it. That's why 100G is so critical. Thankfully with ADVA Optical Networking's turnkey solution, bandwidth is never a problem. We simply plugged the ADVA 100G Core into our legacy 10G network and turned it on," said Martin Fritzsche, head of network administration, Hetzner Online.
Stretching over 250KM, Hetzner Online is now able to transport 100G data signals throughout its backbone network. Connecting data centers in Nuremberg, Frankfurt and Falkenstein, Hetzner Online expects this new 100G capacity to further drive its competitive advantage. ADVA's 100G Core is built on coherent receivers, increased non-linear optical tolerance and is compatible with many existing legacy networks. This compatibility means you no longer need to strip out your existing infrastructure to benefit from 100G connectivity.
"Hetzner Online is a company that moves ahead of the market. It's a company that's earned its fierce reputation because it knows how and when to innovate," commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, vice president, sales, Central Europe, ADVA Optical Networking. "That's why our 100G Core technology is such a good fit. It provides Hetzner Online's customers with the bandwidth they need today but also looks at the bandwidth they'll need tomorrow. 400G, 1T, Hetzner Online knows we'll be ready. What's more, our 100G Core has proven to be plug and play. Regardless of your current network, our solution just interworks harmoniously."
